What To Wear To Day of The Dead

I just finished my fun bauble Day of The Dead themed necklace!

Surrounded by my favorite - felted beads.

I made the cube beads using this crazy quilt I sewed up a few weeks ago. It was the result of the left over materials from the Day of The Dead cards I made for this special event.

The Day of The Dead is November 2nd. The Day of The Dead Festival of The Arts is this Saturday in Toronto.
14:00 - Sunday at 02:00
The El Mocambo
464 Spadina Avenue

I have a table with just Frida themed cards, buttons, mirrors, magnets and necklaces. Hope to see a few of my friends Saturday!

Dear Carmi,
I've just seen your necklace featured at craftgossip so I had to come over and see more details of it.
I think it is gorgeous! The vivid colors of the fabric scream with life,and the composition of various size of beads make it really exceptional! Or simply.. this is a lovely piece of art!
Best,
Maya

I have to give you props, this piece is amazing. I love the bold colors you have chosen, and it will be perfect for your Day of the Dead celebration. Recently my girlfriends and I have gotten into jewelry making ourselves. I've started collecting a variety of Gemstone Beads and charms. Hopefully one day I'll be able to make something as beautiful as this!
